Take a look at the stimulus plan!

Almost every county in Georgia has asked for projects that would include improving county infrastructure and providing jobs. What happened to Fayette County? False pride - while we ask teachers to take a 4% pay cut?


As I look at empty store fronts, good managers of small businesses terminating staff and/or closing - what are the community leaders and elected officials in Fayette County doing to help our local situation?

The county knows that it has a bunch of ignorant residents who will vote for SPLOST because the government tells them to do so with whatever explanation is given, then once the money is approved by the ignorant voters, they turn around and use this money as they see fit, for their own pet projects, and endeavors at the expense of everyone, just look at their track record, they will not be happy until the heart and character of this county that we all have come to love, is destroyed, and the landsacape is full of strip malls, liquor stores, and pawn shops, just like on Old National Hwy, take a trip up there sometimes folks, cause its like a time machine, for this is our future if we choose to do nothing about it. Get mad, Get out there and protest, and most importantly know what it is you are going to vote on next time, or do not vote at all.....PEACE

David's Mom - what's going to happen to all of those jobs when the projects are completed. Just briefly going through the list, most of the jobs would require work for 30-60 days, tops. What will all of those people do once the work is complete? What type of long term prospects will they have for employment?

1. something that incites to action or exertion or quickens action, feeling, thought, etc.: The approval of others is a potent stimulus.

This plan is not supposed to be a long-range plan - but a plan that incites activity so that we can jump-start our economy! Also - you can't build much of anything in 30-60 days. There are some projects, which were submitted LAST YEAR by our leaders for community/local improvement. Be serious - and just don't go 'quickly' through the projects of some of the counties in GA. Some local leaders are doing some 'serious' thinking about putting their citizens back to work - and they appear to have a vision about what is needed in their community.

Geez, couldn't we at least request $$ to complete that golf cart bridge over the RR tracks?

Perhaps the golf cart bridge thingy is not considered "shovel ready"
